Hello,

Please let me know how to stop receiving these emails for Walks and rambles in RI.

 

Thank you,

Susan Johnston

Best prevention is Awareness, along with proper clothing and a complete body check.  Whenever I comb through my kids' hair I think of those videos of monkeys picking through each others fur.  Checking my husband's head is much easier... there are advantages to baldness... besides that Bruce Willis "power" persona.

Thanks for the spell-check, Wendy. (I'll have to remember never to play Scrabble with you!)

And thank you for the great tip. I am now using permethrin with my tequila in place of Lyme. :/


And (seriously now) thank you for helping to continue this conversation so thoughtfully begun by Leanne with all the valuable followup contributions. Ticks are one of our biggest problems on the New England hiking trails, and no matter what our members choose to use to control them, it begins with awareness of the issue. I know this thread is helping with that.
Peace,

Bob

Bob,

Lime?  Lyme.  Hmmm!

God has an interesting way of communicating with us through nature... Doctrine of Signatures, etc. personally,  I believe Father God and/or Mother Nature, provided us with natural (non-synthetic-chemical) rememdies for just about everything... so you prompted me to google Lyme and lime... this is interesting... http://blog.nutri.com/2009/09/treating-lyme-with-lime/

so I wonder how essential oil derived from lime might work?  Blends well with lavender, rosemary, clary sage, black pepper, and other citrus oils.  Might be worth some experimentation.  Note: lime oil should be avoided when it comes to sun exposure and skin with sunlight sensitivity.

I have a number of friends who have suffered (suffer) from Lyme.  It's nasty!

Thank you for highlighting the differentiation on ticks!

Wendy

Thanks Wendy. Interesting.

Some points you may want to consider when choosing a Lime disease-carrying tick repellent:

   - South African ticks are not the same as New England ticks, and they do not carry Lime disease.

   - DEET is not effective at repelling ticks.

   - Lavender may be as effective as DEET -- but DEET is not effective!

   - Permethrin is nearly 100% effective against ticks.

   - Lime disease can lead to life-long debilitating illness.

   - Lavender smells nice. (I just threw that in there...)

After reading this thread about ticks, I asked Beth Newberry for information about a bug repellent produced by a company in Warren, RI... I'll take lavender over Permethrin.  Please share if you find this helpful.

Hi Wendy,

It’s actually the lavender that repels ticks- a 2007 South African Study found that lavender is as effective as DEET at repelling ticks.

·  PubMed.gov: Repellent Effects of the Essential Oil of Lavendula Angustifolia

·  PubMed: Lavandula Angustifolia Essential Oil for Tick Control


Catnip oil is actually 10 times more effective than DEET at repelling mosquitoes.

Lemongrass is also an effective repellant.

Yes cats are the exception but it is not my desire to kill cats, it is just to try to help protect my friends and fellow hikers.  Here is the permethrin profile:

 

Permethrin

Permethrin is a common synthetic chemical, widely used as an insecticide, acaricide, and insect repellent. It belongs to the family of synthetic chemicals called pyrethroids and functions as a neurotoxin, affecting neuron membranes by prolonging sodium channel activation. It is not known to rapidly harm most mammals or birds, but is dangerously toxic to cats[1][2] and fish. In general, it has a low mammalian toxicity and is poorly absorbed by skin.[3

Permethrin is highly toxic to ticks but not toxic to mammals (especially humans).

 

 

Cats are mammals. Even a few drops of concentrated permethrin could be lethal to a cat.

I also have done some studying on the life cycle of deer ticks and associated Lyme disease and have developed a theory that I found substantiated by some research.  It is something each of us can do in an effort (all be it a small one) to minimize our chances of contracting Lyme which can be quite debilitating.  The below diagram illustrates a deer ticks life cycle which is about 2 years. 

 

Error! Filename not specified.

 

It would seem to be most effective to interrupt the life cycle in the early stages during the nymphal period.  I have read in some literature that people have placed old paper towel tubes (biodegradable) filled with  permethrin soaked cotton balls.  Permethrin is highly toxic to ticks but not toxic to mammals (especially humans).  The mice use the cotton for their nests and it kills all the nymphal ticks that attach to them and therefore there will be a corresponding drop in deer tick populations and Lyme disease.  This method is safe and has been used in Texas and other places for deer tick control.  The only caveat would be to keep it away from water because permethrin is toxic to fish.  It is just an idea but certainly a plausible one in an effort to take extra steps to keep all of us safe.  Permethrin can be purchased at REI and it is far more effective against ticks than deet.  At the very least I would suggest to apply it to your clothing in an effort to thwart any tick encounters.

I hope this helps everyone.

Take care,

Brian

Hello to all, the above link is something I thought was worthwhile to share w/ members. There is alot of good info on this site.

 

 

      Dr. Mather guy from URI who created this webpage is apparently quite the regional expert on this subject. There are some interesting links including ways to have tick-resistant clothing.

Check it out!
